How this identifier works

To start, upload your image. Our AI tool will then predict if it contains a weapon.

This pretrained image model uses the Gun Knives Object Detection dataset and is built with 11700 samples across 2 labels, including Has Weapon and No Weapon (and looks specifically for knives or guns).

We'll also show a confidence score (the higher the number, the more confident the AI model is that it contains a weapon).

Whether you’re a tech-minded hobbyist, just curious, or building weapons detection into your application, we hope our classifier proves helpful.
